Hello Valued Customer, 

Happy December! In honor of the season, I have a special request of you. Many of our residents come to us having lost nearly everything, including hope. This is why mentors and role models are so important. At Next Step Recovery, our recovery “rock stars” include staff, recovery coaches, peer support specialists, 12-step sponsors and senior residents - all of whom work closely with residents to ensure they have everything they need to succeed.

Will you help us ROCK recovery? Here’s how:

Your generous support of our non-profit, in any amount, will help ensure we can continue to provide residents with the clinical support, addictions education, life-skills training and scholarship assistance that transform lives -- more than 1,000 of them in the past 11 years.

As part of your donation, we offer you the opportunity to nominate your own rock star -- a public figure, family member or friend who demonstrates the courage and commitment it takes to “rock” recovery. We’ll hang your star on our holiday tree to inspire us throughout the season!


Email or call me at the contact information below, or send money via Paypal to make your tax-deductible donation and to share your star (and your light).


Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Next Step Recovery has established its own high standards. Watch the full story here.

Happy Hanukkah
